Assignment #3 is out! and you can find it at the end of the lecture notes for class 5 (it deals with - surprise - cellular automata...). Due on Feb 11!
Assignment #2 is out! and you can find it at the end of the lecture notes for class 3 (it deals with streaming...)
IMPORTANT! there are two versions of CLM and we're still using the old one for this course (clm-1 as oppossed to the newer clm-2. The CCRMA web page points to the NEW one so don't follow that link to go to the clm manual. The correct manual for the system is here, as opposed to the newer version here... PLEASE pay attention, there are enough small differences to confuse you if you hit the wrong page!. The correct reference is now included in this page but there might be other pages with the wrong link...

All course materials will be placed on-line in CCRMA's World Wide Web server (http://ccrma-www.stanford.edu).The on-line clm distribution (source code, examples and so on...)
The on-line "CLM Manual".
Units: The student may sign up for two or four units. Two units involves no project work, and the student is responsible only for completing the homework assignments. Signing up for four units implies at least six hours per week devoted to a project.
Homeworks: Assignments or homeworks are going to be posted on the course web site and are to be emailed back to a TA (to whom will be announced during class). The homework must include all materials necessary for the TA to be able to recreate the results (for example, a soundfile is not enough, the homework must include all code necessary to recreate the soundfile from scratch - ie: clm instruments used, programs, scripts, clm note lists, etc). All auxilliary files must be sent to the TA as MIME attachments. Homeworks are due one week after the class during which they were posted. A late homework will have a substantially lower grade than one submitted in time. Late homeworks will not be accepted after the last day of finals this quarter (Winter 2000).
Projects: The project may consist of clm work, independent study, research work or a small compositional project. Requirements for the project include a one-page proposal by the third week of the quarter (to be submitted through email to the TA), a project report due by the end of the quarter and an in-class demonstration on the last day of class. For projects which span multiple quarters, interim write-ups are required each quarter. The project report is due by the last day of finals at the end of the quarter (Winter 2000). If that deadline cannot be met, you may take an incomplete for the course and turn in your project sometime later in the year, provided your homeworks have been properly received.
Teaching Assistant: The TA's are Matthew Burtner (office hours will be [not yet defined]) and Unjung Nam (office hours will be [not yet defined]). Office hours for the instructor (Fernando Lopez-Lezcano) are Tuesdays from 3:30pm to 5:00pm. At all other times we can be reached by email.
Mailing list: We have a mailing list available for discussions, tips, tricks and general consultation. The address is "email@example.com".
General Information: Feel free to browse through the "CCRMA User's Guide" which highlights the available facilities and how to best use them. The document also includes a link to the FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions"... try to browse through them before asking questions....
